by radz

This is first cave.There are 109 caves,used as living place,prayer hall,penace rooms,and Kitchen.Seems all living place ,they made carving at black rock hill at Kanheri.
It took more than 150 year to complete to finish all caves.

The pic you see is cave no1,yah all caves have number.Its unfinihsed Vihara,seems defect in rock,so they dint complete full.
inside can see rooms for penace,stone bed ,all carved in rock only.

This cave sides can see inscriptions still readable,even can see chinesh inscription :)
If you know the languages you read too.
